Why Authentic Opel Spares Are EssentialOpel Spares | Importance of Authentic Opel Spares

Opel spares are in such demand today because of one reason. The birth of the 2.0L Super Boss, when it arguably became the fastest car in its class back in the 80s. Originally born and bred to compete in the South African Group N racing series, the Opel Kadett GSi 16V S, better known as the Super Boss, competed and beat the dominating BMW 325iS in its heyday. Since then, Opel has become an iconic brand name with a loyal following.

However, the Super Boss was not the first of the brands’ performance-orientated hatchback Kadetts. Its predecessor, the 1.8L SOHC 8V GSi earned the nickname Boss and gave the BMW dominance a good run for its money. But the engineers at Opel quickly followed this beast by introducing the DOHC 16V 2.0L variant, which went by the name Big Boss. It was the Super Boss that proved too challenging and dominated the racing arena for seasons, stamping the Opel brand as a force to be reckoned with.

The Opel brand’s loyal supporters know when maintaining an Opel, not all spares are the right fit for your Opel. The only way to go is with authentic Opel spares.


How to Choose Opel Spares

As with any successful brand, many companies jumped on the bandwagon and tried to assimilate Opel spares. But the expert car parts providers at A.S.A.P. Spares know better! Look out for what you buy and who you buy it from. Not all spare parts are good for your car and may even cause catastrophic failure if fitted incorrectly. Therefore, we will briefly discuss why only authentic Opel spares and brand-approved aftermarket parts should be used in repairing or rebuilding your Opel. Here’s why in two simple steps:

  1. Choose OEM parts first:

    Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts are always recommended as the first choice. However, should your project be time-sensitive, budget-restrictive, or the model you are working on is simply too old, second-hand OEM parts should be considered. Pre-owned spares, if responsibly selected, can do much more for your Opel than counterfeited spares, as these parts might be damaging to your vehicle.

  1. Do not Choose Grey Market Spare Parts:

    As inviting as these prices may seem, do not procure counterfeit spares for your Opel. Engine modifications, fittings, fairings and other parts that are produced to make your vehicle look more attractive might come from dubious origins. If it does not fit dealer specifications, do not buy these parts. They might look attractive but are not conducive to a vehicle that you would want to transport loved ones in.
